Family Portraits at the Hartley Botanica (Somis, CA)

This is the second time I’ve taken this family’s portraits. This time we used the Hartley Botanica in Somis as the backdrop. It’s such a beautiful place for portraits (and they host weddings there too).

Technical details: Mamiya 645AF with 80mm f/2.8 lens, Nikon F100 with 50mm f/1.4 lens, Kodak Portra 400 film. The lead image was subtly lit with an off-camera strobe through an umbrella.
